Make these giant, tax-dodging, multinational corporations pay what they owe. Don't reward them for tax-dodging. And restore the 52% corporate tax rate instead of cutting it even further.
Kenya’s November deadline to shut down camps and repatriate Somali refugees leaves a community living in dangerous limbo
The expat life is an amazing gift we give our children but returning home has its share of hurdles. The challenges will differ for each person but the level of support that's needed upon the return home remains the same.
Amid rumors of repatriation and forced returns, refugee advocates argue that militarization, confiscation of land and decreases
As migrant laws and international conventions governing the treatment of asylum seekers come under greater scrutiny, long-term plans for the repatriation of refugees to African countries are being negotiated as a part of the solution to the global migration crisis.
It turns out that Sanders does have a detailed corporate tax plan to pay for his infrastructure plan. He introduced the plan as a Senate bill shortly before announcing his run for the Democratic nomination for President. It is called the Corporate Tax Dodging Prevention Act.
Clinton's infrastructure plan says only that it will be paid for through "business tax reform." It does not detail the nature of the reforms that would pay for this spending. Similarly, Sanders does not yet have a specific individual and corporate tax proposal, but he has proposed a financial transaction tax and says he will close loopholes.
This rigs the game against families and smaller businesses that have to pick up the slack. Families and small U.S. companies pay 17.5 percent. The biggest corporations pay less, even zero.
Never mind the decades of gibberish we have been subjected to about "tax cuts increase revenue to the government" and "low taxes means more jobs" and "pro-growth policies" and "government takes money out of the economy" and "tax cuts hurt growth" and "taxes are theft."
What is really going on is the game is being rigged. Corporations get huge tax breaks and subsidies, a few billionaires and plutocrats get the cash, and We the People, the 99 percent, have to make up the difference.
A strangely popular proposal would give companies a temporary tax holiday, letting corporations "repatriate" their money at an extremely low tax rate, thereby encouraging more corporate tax dodging in the future. You'd think that common sense and strong opposition would be enough to kill a bad policy. Not in Washington, D.C., apparently.
Another year has come and gone, and 2015 presents an opportunity to start fresh. With that in mind, it's time for the newly minted 114th Congress to make the right choices for the public's interest in its New Year's resolutions, and making the tax code fairer is a good place to start.
Bill Clinton also called to "give incentives to repatriate … nearly $2 trillion overseas," suggesting that the U.S. grant
It is clear that the scale and complexity of problems facing refugees necessitates long-term political commitment in Afghanistan in order to bring about sustainable transformation for refugees.
Like a bad penny, this tax repatriation idea just keeps coming back. You know, the one where you offer a bribe to multinational corporations in the form of a big tax cut to "repatriate" their foreign earnings.
Republicans serve ideological masters, Democrats serve constituencies. None of the Democrats' constituencies fare well under Republican ideology, and nothing that serves Democrats' constituencies satisfies Republican ideology. Unstoppable force, meet immovable object.
In my last column in The Hill I proposed Democrats accept a cut in taxes for repatriation of foreign capital from multinationals
